Our Melbourne season of La bohème has now concluded. VIEW SYDNEY PERFORMANCES
A new production of Puccini’s La bohème is always a big event. In 2011 Opera Australia is thrilled to present a bold reworking of Puccini’s romance from director Gale Edwards, starring Takesha Meshé Kizart as Mimi and Ji-Min Park as Rodolfo.
We are in Berlin in the 1920s. The Spiegeltent’s fairy lights are twinkling and the music is playing but, in reality, people are hungry and cold.
Rodolfo meets Mimi and hardship melts in a blaze of passion. Musetta sings and she is the most beautiful woman in the world. But the world is changing, and love won’t pay the rent.
La bohème is a young person’s opera. It’s about falling in love, and losing the love of your life. Get ready to have your heart stolen by some of the finest young artists in Australia and beyond.
